Plasma Q-plate for intense laser beam shaping

Kenan Qu, Qing Jia, Nathaniel J. Fisch

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


A q-plate for manipulating wavefronts of high-intensity laser beams is proposed in a magnetized plasma. Using full kinetic particle-in-cell simulations, we demonstrate that light with orbital angular momentum above ionization intensity can be generated.
